Understanding the Iran-Contra Affairs

Isn’t it amazing how American history has #Whitewashed and attempted to erase the Iran-Contra affair? Today in history; Oliver North began his testimony yet there is no mention in the news. This is especially perplexing since the sitting President was implicated in knowledge of if not active  involvement very similar to what is happening with the current 45. The media was also wondering (On July 7, 1987, a headline on the front of The Wall Street Journal asked a critical question: “Which Col. North Will Tell His Story to Nation: The Villain Who Deceived or Hero Who Obeyed?”) based upon the headline. 

For me my question will always be  concerning the level of knowledge those involved had  of the fact that the Contras were directly involved in distributing cocain (and crack) to inner-city neighborhoods.
